Hello? Are you too preoccupied?

[blockquote source=”2 Corinthians 12:10“]That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.[/blockquote]

For a time I was really getting ahead of myself.  Things were going really well that I began to think that I am invincible; that I could do no wrong. Then one obstacle appears after another; and soon it began to slow me down.  It was only then that I realised that, for the longest time I have been so self-sufficient that God has little place in my heart.  It was only then that these obstacles humbled me and reminded me of the need to keep in constant contact with the Lord.

Many a times, we are either too caught up with our successes or too depressed with the circumstances that we forgot that our Father in Heaven is waiting for us to connect with Him.

Dear Father, please forgive me for I was too preoccupied with other matters, where I should be keeping in constant contact with You.  In Jesus name, Amen.
